    Hi people, I know nothing when it comes to wiring pups. What way does the Evolution pup come in (series or parallel) when it is in the shop? I ask because I recently discovered that my yamaha tele is wired in parallel and I really like the sound. Can an Evo be made parallel? BigJob

    I had these puppies in my LNG 777 I sold last week. Life sucks when you sell a 777 LNG. However, being the owner of Pink Dimarzio humbuckers might make your life that much sweeter. These 2 humbuckers are less than a year old and were wired into the LNG that just sat in its case. So they are...

    I emailed a tech rep from Dimarzio asking about specs for V1 through V8 Ibanez pickups. He wrote back that Dimarzio did not produce those pickups for Ibanez. I had always heard that they were made by Dimarzio. Were they inspired by a Dimarzio model and made by Ibanez? Just curious. I love the...
